Annihilation

Well, that’s not freaky at all…

OK, I lied – everything is pretty freaky in this offbeat sci-fi meditation on a changing world, one of those rare times when a rock-solid book becomes an even-better film.

Having pre-read the Southern Reach trilogy, I knew a lot of what was coming, including some of the freakier moments, but director Alex Garland does a nice job of confounding expectations.

Natalie Portman anchors a stellar cast, playing a professor who goes exploring into an area where a meteor has birthed a new universe of its own.

The land from which no one returns unchanged.
